BVRLA calls for action on mileage clocking

The BVRLA has urged the Government to regulate vehicle mileage adjustment companies.

Responding to the Department for Transport’s Odometer Fraud consultation, the association has suggested that operators working in this field must be required to register with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency and sign up to a set of minimum standards. This would include making it an offence to change the vehicle mileage without obtaining permission from legal owner of the vehicle.

The BVRLA believes that vehicle mileage should only be adjusted when there is a genuine need such as odometer failure or engine changes. 

The association’s response to the Odometer Fraud consultation can be downloaded from the BVRLA website.
